This recipe is a favorite from the Pillsbury Bake-off. It is a simple cookie recipe that always pleases my family. It is also much more economical than buying those sprinkle cookies from the grocery store.

Pretty easy cookie to make, and they were enjoyed by my whole family. I made 1/2 batch of cream cheese frosting to put on them (1/2 stick butter, 1/2 package cream cheese, couple of cups of powdered sugar and 1/2 t vanilla).
I also only had yellow cake mix, so I used it and put sprinkles in the dough. My kids were delighted to have them as an after school snack!

These tasted good and were so easy to make. We brought them to a family gathering and people were asking for the recipe:)

I just made these tonight and used a homemade cake mix "Homemade Yellow Cake Mix (Subtitute 18.25oz Betty Crocker Box)" from second2none. It worked beautifully. I also made the shortening based frosting from a different recipe and i made a mistake a didn't add enough powdered sugar but the cookie itself is great and the frosting too, just a bit more sweet.
